Conservatory" 
history" 




The New England Conservatory of Music was founded in 1867 by Dr. 
Eben Tourjee, and was incorporated in 1870 by a special act of the 
Massachusetts Legislature. Its first home was a few rooms in the Old 
Music Hall, but with its rapid growth and development the institution 
outgrew its limited quarters and in 1882 moved to Franklin Square 
House. The initiative and generosity of a distinguished trustee, 
Eben D. Jordan, made possible the construction of the present building 
designed specifically for musical training. It was occupied in 1902 
and a substantial wing, added in 1928, was dedicated to the then 
President of the Board of Trustees, George W. Brown. 

Dr. Tourjee, at the beginning of the first century of the Con- 
servatory's life, like President Schuller, at the outset of the second 
century, was an innovator in the field of music education. He, too, 
stressed a broad spectrum of educational experiences for the music 
student of that day. His creation, the New England Conservatory of 
Music, became the model for all the great American conservatories that 
were to follow. 

In 1947, Harrison Keller became the first director to bear the 
title of president, in keeping with the new concept of a college of 
music. President Keller effected membership for the Conservatory in 
the New England Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools, ena- 
bling the institution to have complete accreditation. During the 
period of his leadership, advanced diplomas were awarded to qualified 
post-Masters candidates in performance, and the Conservatory Chorus 
was developed into an outstanding performing organization, appearing 
in annual performances and frequent recordings with the Boston Sympho- 
ny Orchestra.

two -thirds of the musical life of Boston and 
the New England area. Conservatory students 
faculty, and alumni are the backbone of over 
150 church and temple choirs throughout the 
area. Ballet, opera, and Broadway show pit 
orchestras, jazz groups, and a host of 
other musical activities are made possible 
by the Conservatory's existence.

THE PREPARATORY SCHOOL 

The Preparatory School was founded in 1950 by Frances B. Lanier and Virginia P. Bacon. 
The program was created by the New England Conservatory to present a unique opportunity to 
enrich the musical lives of children and teenagers of Boston and neighboring communities. Ad- 
mission to the program consists of interviews and auditions which are arranged by the office. 
Adult students interested in non-credit instruction are admitted on the basis of availability of 
lesson times. The branch at The Park School in Brookline was established in 1975 and is under 
the administration of the Boston office. 

The wide variety of programs offered fulfills the need to instill the love and knowledge of 
music in future generations and a solid technical preparation, under the direction of highly 
specialized teachers and artists, for those who choose music as a career. 

An integral part of student participation is a series of Saturday recitals which are open to 
the public. Monthly departmental workshops offer students opportunities to work in all aspects 
of performance as well as provide a background in music history and literature. Aseries of 
concerts is also held at The Park School facility. 

PREPARATORY CERTIFICATE COURSE 

For students who wish pre-professional training, the certificate represents the attainment 
of progressive degrees of musicianship and artistic skills developed through satisfactory com- 
'\ pletion of a balanced plan of instrumental instruction, theoretical studies and ensemble exper- 
ience. Each of the four certificates. Elementary, Junior. Intermediate and Senior, is awarded 
to the student after an instrumental audition by a faculty panel and fulfillment of class and en- 
semble requirements. 

Enrollment in theory classes is determined by a placement test. Very young beginners are 
offered Purhythmics. Older beginners are placed in groups according to age. 

Since ensembles are formed at various levels of proficiency, requirements vary. Beginners 
will develop in many directions, but should have a fair reading skill as well as a good ear and 
good basic sense of rhythm. Students are grouped according to age and advancement will be 
determined by audition.
